Museum of Jewish Culture - Nitra
In September 2005, the Museum of Jewish Culture opened an impressive exhibition “The Fate of Slovak Jews“. The national Holocaust memorial exhibition is installed in the women’s gallery of the restored Neolog Synagogue in Nitra.

The synagogue building was realized by the prolific Budapest-based synagogue specialist, Lipót (Leopold) Baumhorn, in 1908-1911. This free-standing building located in the narrow lane is a fine example of his architectural ability. The south façade faces the street with a two-tower accent and extensive fenestration. The entrance vestibule leads from the side to the sanctuary with an eastern orientation and a polygonal rear. Typical for synagogues by Baumhorn, the sanctuary is a domed hall supported by four pillars that also carry the women’s gallery. Access to the gallery is provided by two stairways on the northern corners of the building. The building is a characteristic Baumhornian mélange of Moorish, Byzantine, and Art Nouveau elements.

The exhibition is located at:
Pri synagóge 3, Nitra
